I liked Texas!
I liked visiting a place where flowers are growing, even in mid-January.
We spent a couple of days in San Antonio, where we wandered the Riverwalk, and enjoyed being out doors in 70-ish degrees!
I liked eating yummy Mexican food outdoors, and feeding the ducks. One of them even came up right next to our table and pecked on my husband's pant leg for more food. Obviously, this was not the first time some humans had fed him from their table!
We spent some time visiting the Alamo, and I liked learning a little bit about the history of this place. It's interesting how the city grew up around the old mission, but people had the foresight to save the buildings and preserve them for us to see and hear the story of the famous battle.
The next few days we spent down at the Gulf Coast, near South Padre Island, where my SIL and BIL are camped out for a few months. We went out on the water for dolphin watching, and saw many other fun creatures as well!
These pelicans know when the fishing boats come in, and they boisterously ask for food from the fishermen.
I liked this collection of carved wood pelicans I saw at a shop, and wished I had a way to bring one home. I guess a photo will have to do!
We did see some dolphins, and some of the other creatures from the bottom of the ocean. I even got to hold one! I'm sure he was scared to death of me. I was glad when they put him back into his natural habitat.
I liked this view of all the high rises along South Padre Island, and the people enjoying the beach - in January!
I liked putting my feet in the Gulf of Mexico!
And finding treasures...
It was a good trip, a nice get away, and now I'm glad to be home! ☺
Hope you've been having a great week! Don't forget to check out more things to like on Thursday with LeeAnna over at Not Afraid of Color.
